KSI Names Leroy Hicks Employee of the Quarter


Leroy Hicks, of Harrington, recently received the Employee of the Quarter Award for the First Quarter 2011 from Kent-Sussex Industries, Inc. (KSI).

Supported by KSI since 1980, Mr. Hicks, is known for his gentle, mild mannered nature, and for taking on diverse work challenges. He worked in KSI’s Supported Employment Program at Wendy’s for 14 years before failing sight necessitated his return to the KSI Milford facility. Not only does he work on an assortment of jobs in the facility, but he is also a passionate volunteer. He serves as Vice President of the KSI Aktion Club, a participant-lead community service organization supported by the Dover Kiwanis Club.

As Employee of the Quarter, Mr. Hicks’ name has been added to a permanent plaque at KSI and he received two savings bonds, one provided by KSI, and one donated by the Dover Federal Credit Union. He also received a gift certificate donated by G & R Campground in Houston entitling him to spend a weekend in one of their cottages, and a one year aquatics membership from the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club.
